What is one-to-one mentoring?
The work we do at 12 Buckets takes a village, but one of the most important components of that village is the work that is done by our generous volunteer mentors. Being a mentor with 12 Buckets is more than just showing up, it’s about understanding that there is more to the world around you than just you. Your positive influence can influence actionable change in the lives of a 12 Buckets student.
Fullness in life comes when you pour yourself out for others
Our tailored one-to-one mentoring program is built to support primary aged students. We focus our mentoring around a guided 12 Buckets model for the student that has four core qualities: Independence, belonging, mastery and generosity.
What makes a mentoring experience special?
At 12 Buckets, we work with our mentors to build resilience in students. It’s all about understanding and identifying the strengths you see in your student and then empowering them to build upon those strengths. We do this by getting to know our students through games, building, making music, playing sports, the list goes on!
